Nairobi cyclists blocked Thika Superhighway during a protest following the death of Caleb Omwoyo who was killed on September 16 after he collided with a bus.
The protest took place on Saturday, September 19, when they gathered at the Nairobi CBD and started cycling towards the Thika Superhighway.
Nairobi Women Rep Esther Passaris, who had joined them, denounced that Omwoyo was only 22 when he died.
“Thank you for coming out and when you go home, say a prayer for Caleb and all the people who have lost their lives because of going out in their bicycles,” she said.
Before his death, Caleb was a supporter of fair road usage and urged drivers to be aware of the cyclists and motorcyclists on the road.
Until his death, he practiced safe road use by ensuring that his helmet was on and visible clothing with reflectors.
A group of Cyclists led by Crispus Mahea started a petition calling for justice for the late Omwoyo demanding the arrest of the bus driver who was involved in the accident that killed him.
